Elevators are used every day throughout businesses and office buildings. In the state of New York there are federal, state, local regulations that go along with elevators. All of these different regulations can make it very confusing if an injury occurs as a result of an elevator accident. In addition, elevators can be very confusing because while a building is responsible for the elevators the company that installed the elevators could also be liable. The accidents that occur in elevators almost always happen because an elevator was not properly maintained and serviced. If an elevator does not work properly and an injury occurs it is important to make sure that all of these rules and regulations have been followed. If the rules haven’t been properly followed, the property owner might be at fault.
